A wonderful and very desirable Seattle neighborhood, Magnolia is the second largest Seattle neighborhood by area, and according to “Wikipedia” has been part of the city since 1891. It is near all the excitement and resources of downtown yet enjoys the status of being a quiet village, set apart from the urban bustle. With the […]
About Edy KizakiEdy's perfectionism and dedication result in attention to detail during every stage of your search and purchase experience.
Edy and her family came to the area seven years ago and fell in love with it. The size, natural beauty, people, culture and educational resources all make it an exceptional place to live, work, and play. Edy brings her experience in business, management and negotiation to her work in real estate. But it is her love of people and her joy in being involved with your important moments of change and decision in the process of life that make her dedicated and unfailing in the pursuit of your goals.
As a realtor and most recently the team leader at SeattlePowerSearch.com, the Seattle branch of eXp Realty, Edy has been involved in over 150 real estate transactions in the past five years, involving homes from Vashon Island to Duvall, Snoqualmie Ridge to Bellingham! What a great and inspiring way to learn about this amazing place. Of course, her GPS has been invaluable to the process...now Edy feels like she's "from" Seattle, but with the added ability to understand what it means to relocate here and which knowledge is first tier, which is better to follow after. She works extensively with relocation clients in Seattle and on the Eastside, including from Microsoft, Amazon, Boeing, University of Washington, and their subsidiaries. She lives in Richmond Beach, part of Shoreline five minutes north of the Seattle 'border', and loves Queen Anne, Magnolia, Fremont, Ballard, Wallingford, Green Lake, Ravenna, and the areas along the west side of Lake Washington, as well as Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, and Edmonds. On the Eastside she has spent most time in Kirkland, Bellevue, Redmond, Woodinville, Sammamish and Issaquah. She has also worked extensively on luxury condos in Belltown and Downtown, and enjoys comparing views with the best of them!
Edy's involvement in real estate began in the 1980's when she was part of a Project Development Team for a real estate company in San Francisco for two years. After having worked on several major San Francisco and Lake Tahoe projects, she became most interested in buying and leasing of properties, including sales of business opportunities. She was also the official company photographer. There followed a period of work in finance, but an interest in travel led her to Japan, where she lived and worked teaching in university for 12 years. In addition she founded and ran her own large private school and formed Currents, a group that produced art exhibitions in Japan, America, and Australia, and arranged tours of New York and on the West Coast.
Eventually Edy returned to Monterey, California, where she taught Japanese, designed instruction, was a project manager for multimedia products, a product developer for early childhood educational products, and helped manage a five-star resort hotel, all while completing a masters in Multimedia and Instructional Design. Upon relocating to the Pacific Northwest with her family, she pursued her real estate license and is now deeply involved in helping her clients search for the perfect property in the local real estate market. When not at work, Edy practices Aikido and takes advantage of the local boating, picnicking and hiking riches with her family and friends. Oh, yes, and the great restaurants!

All over the Seattle area salmon viewing is still taking place. The time to see them returning to spawn starts in June and is best in September, but you can still see them in October, and early November. If you are in Seattle there are many places to go see them, perhaps one of the […]
There is rarely a bad time to walk around Green Lake, but I must admit a partiality to the fall season. With the trees turning colors and the dogs prancing in delight at the crisp air and numerous pooch friendly opportunities, the joggers, bikes, baby strollers, walk and talkers, and even some rollerbladers, the Lake […]
Ballard. Thinking about Seattle as a whole it seems like Ballard is a neighborhood. But when you really start considering Ballard, there are actually lots of little neighborhoods, and what I think of as 4 main sections. Also, it really depends if you are looking at condos or single family homes (and there are some […]
A couple of hours to fill on a quiet evening right after Memorial Day. It’s a serious holiday with a lot of remembrance and giving thanks for those who have gone before, sacrificed, left us so much. Now in the aftermath of that day of contemplation and an almost dreamy looking back quality, what could […]
Early evening, still light, quiet tree-lined streets in Old Town Ballard hold a still promise of the dinner hour. Lights from the restaurants, pubs, and wine cafes glow over wooden tables set artfully on old wooden floors, windows gleam with un-looked for bits and pieces of the past, and reflect trees, leaves, branches, telephone poles, […]
PCC is a natural, organic Seattle food co-op. I think of it as a lot like Whole Foods and a lot different. Being local, it is, you could say, “very Seattle.” By that I mean community values, green values, a laid back humorous vibe and delicious ripe fresh flavor. There are nine locations around the […]
One of Seattle’s favorite parks, it is hard to imagine a day any time of year when Green Lake wouldn’t have a steady stream of dog walkers, joggers, skaters (ok, more of them in the summer, but…) and even bicyclists making use of the variety of paths and the road that circle the three mile […]
Green Lake has a special place called Tangletown that’s full of great places to eat, drink, and enjoy with your friends. Eva Restaurant may not be as famous as some Seattle spots but have dinner here and you’ll see a lot of dedicated neighborhood residents that return again and again for a very special experience […]
